Crazy And Unusual Home Tours: The Life Of A Real Estate Agent

A real estate agent’s life is anything but ordinary. We come across a lot of crazy things in our industry. Most of the time we’re hard at work, but sometimes we can’t help but laugh about the crazy things we see while at work.

A few days ago I posted a posted a question in a Facebook group of 49,000 Real Estate Agents called Lab Coat Agents.

What’s the craziest thing that’s ever happened to you while showing homes?

There were a lot of stories about people being caught naked or in compromised situations. I chose not to include those stories here, but feel free to read those on our Facebook Page – Lab Coat Agents.

Courtney Cameron from San Diego wrote the following which I thought was funny.

Robert C Stern reminds us to make sure we double check what our clients leave up when selling a home. Josh Chapman makes a valid point.

Cecilia Cece Fox has a scary encounter. Finding a dead body while working can be very traumatizing. She handled it well.

This one I can relate to because it happened to me in the past.  Juan Gabriel Molina tells a story all too familiar.

When reading this story it reminds me that sometimes we have to wear hats or caps when looking at homes. Read Dominique Zarow‘s story.

Matthew Olszak‘s story is a frightening one. Real estate agents often come across dangerous situations. Make sure you have your safety in mind all the time. Safety first.

You never know what you’ll encounter while showing homes. Isabel C. Diaz proves that to us.

These stories could go on and on (and they did on our Lab Coat Agents Page). Thanks for reading. – Tristan Ahumada Realtor.
